Intensive introduction to battery modeling with COMSOL Multiphysics®

If you are looking to learn how to model batteries using the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, this is the course for you.

During this 4-day course, we will discuss the capabilities of the Battery Design Module and go over its new features and improved functionality for battery design and analysis. We will look into underlying physics such as transport of charged and neutral species, charge balances, chemical and electrochemical reactions, Joule heating and thermal effects due to electrochemical reactions, heat transfer, fluid flow, and other physical phenomena that are important for understanding a battery system.

Through training exercises, you will learn about predefined battery interfaces with different complexity levels, including the detailed structures in a battery's porous electrode and the battery pack scale including thermal management systems. You will learn how to study the influence of various design parameters, such as the choice of materials, dimensions, and the particle sizes of the active material. You will also learn how to incorporate various aging mechanisms into your model.

Training Course Objective

We will use a combination of instructive and self-guided hands-on training together with theoretical and practical lectures. By the end of this training course, you will have a comprehensive overview of the available predefined battery interfaces within the Battery Design module. You will learn how to construct battery models at various scales to gain a thorough understanding of underlying physics and performance.
